Breed: Bull Terrier/Pit Mix
Approximate Age: 8 years old
Meet Jacob, a loving eight-year-old bull terrier/pit mix. Jacob was originally rescued by the PSPCA Humane Law Enforcement Team in 2012 and has been in and out of the shelter for years. Jacob is the currently the longest-living resident at the PSPCA and has been homeless for almost 900 days!
Jacob has some amazing bull terrier qualities in him, like the need to be close to a kind adult who is totally down to snuggle. He is definitely a pup that loves to stay by your side and will give you tons of love throughout the day. Who doesn’t love a snuggle bug? One of Jacob’s favorite things to do is to nap - he follows a nap, chill-on-a-comfy-chair, and nap again routine, and really, who could blame him?! Jacob will remind you to slow down and go with the relaxing flow of life.
Jacob is super smart and loves to learn. He’s searching for someone who will be willing to teach him some new tricks! Because he can be a little bit nervous about new situations and other animals, Jacob will do best in an adult-only home as the single pet. He’s been in foster care before, and has proven he can be very well-behaved in a home.
This sweet guy is a favorite at the PSPCA - he’s even got his own Instagram account, @adopt_jacob! Do you have a comfortable couch or bed that Jacob could take a snooze on? If so, he would really love to meet you!
We are hoping that through this initiative we can finally find Jacob the nice home that he deserves after all this time. If you are interested in meeting Jacob and talking to the PA SPCA about him, simply click the link below and fill out our contact form. As always, if you fill out this form and eventually adopt Jacob, WE WILL PAY HIS ADOPTION FEE!
UPDATE: Sweet Jacob passed away surrounded by his loving friends at the PSPCA. 💙
